Sorry, I should have gone into a little more detail. The fix makes
distcc not hang if the remote job crashes. 'can't be distributed' did not
mean 'if the job never gets distributed to the remote machine'.
I was getting these hangs when using ccache and distcc together, which
triggered a bug in the remote distccd, causing it to crash and the local
distcc to hang.
